The past they are recreating goes further back. The democrat party, the actions of the party and the situations and issues swirling around us seem to very closely mirrors the 1930s and FDR/his administration.

The parallels are eerily similar to being repeated history.

Great Article, as always from the Great Dr. Sowell.

My High School senior thesis was about the failure of the commune. I lived near the site one such 19th century experiment called “Brook Farm”. The only “collective farms’ in history that succeeded (in my conclusion) were the kibbutzim of the New Nation of Israel, founded just twenty years prior to the date of my thesis.

At the time, being a hippie agnostic, my conclusions puzzled me more than you’ll ever know! But I was honest in my assessment of History and presented my conclusions based on my research.

Now, nearly a half century later, the Kibbutzim are still going strong, and the left despises Israel!

Go Figure.

Forward to the past, indeed. And our children are not being taught that history, and thus are doomed to repeat it. What a crying shame.

Great work by Dr. Sowell, again, and thank you for the ping and Christmas wishes, Jazusamo.
